I stopped by my local Grocery Outlet in Kent, this weekend to pick up some items I can use to make some quick, easy and affordable meals to whip up as we start back in to our school schedules. There is also a $5/$25 printable coupon you can use this week to save even more!
Here is one affordable meal I grabbed at Grocery Outlet this week:
Southwestern Chicken – cost: $6.17 to make a large crockpot meal to feed 5
You can find this recipe here if you are interested in making it. Here is how you can make a crockpot full of this Southwestern chicken for just over $6:
Use 1/2 bag of frozen boneless skinless chicken breast – $2.50 (the bag was $4.99 total in freezer section)
(can substitute 1/2 bag of Pride chicken thighs for much less. They have skin on, but these cost you $2.99 for the bag, so just $1.50 for this recipe)
1 can black beans $.50 (I found Pennys organic black beans for $.99 if you would rather)
1 can whole kernel corn for $.50
1 can Campbells cream of chicken soup $.89
1 jar salsa $1.29
You can also serve it over a bed of rice, and get a 2 lb bag of long grain rice for just over $1 too!
I also made my usual stop into the cheese section and picked up more Creamy Havarti for just $1.49 and the Smoky Gouda (pictured at bottom of photo) for $3.09, and a big stick of summer sausage for $3.99! I grabbed a 1 lb container of organic strawberrys and will use these items for quick lunches to pack for my kids (they love cheese, crackers, fruit and yogurt kind of lunches).
Other deals I found:
Caravali Coffee for $4.99, as well as Coffee Mate Creamer for $1.99 for a 32 oz size (its chocolate mint from Christmas, but expiration date is not for another couple of months!).
And for mom, Crystal Light packs for just $.99 a box!
…and much more!!
